How to install a custom ISO on a Dedicated Server (Supermicro)

Firstly, thank you for purchasing a TrentaHost DDoS Protected Dedicated Server. You may follow the below guide to install your own Custom ISO onto the server. You may also choose from one of our pre-installed Operating Systems during the checkout process. 

1.) Access your Dedicated Server Control Panel: https://portal.trentahost.com/

(The details would have been emailed to you once the Dedicated is setup, you may also reset your password from the above URL.)

2.)  Once logged into the Control Panel, choose the Dedicated Server you'd like to install with your Custom ISO by clicking the Summary Folder ICON on the right.

3.) Once the Dedicated Summary Page has displayed, navigate to the bottom KVM Console area and click on the Launch Console button. This will download a JAVA Application to your computer. Run the application on your computer and this will load the KVM Console for the server.

4.) In the Java KVM Console -> Select Virtual Media ->  CD ROM & ISO tab -> Select the ISO File in the Logical Drive Type option and click Open Image. Select the ISO from your local computer and press OPEN, then click on the PLUG IN button. The console will output a result success message.

The CDROM is now loaded with your ISO. 

5.) In the JAVA KVM Console -> Select Power Control -> Reset/Reboot. The server will now reboot, during the reboot keep pressing the F11 key on your keyboard until you see a BLUE SCREEN. Use the arrows on your keyboard to navigate to IPMI Virtual CDROM and press Enter. The server will now load your ISO installation.

Please DO NOT close or interrupt the KVM Console during the ISO installation as this will disconnect the ISO from the CDROM and corrupt your installation.
